Introduction:
What do you get when you cross a dirty needle with a hooker's neck?
I have no idea. Why, did she say something?
Alright, fun's over.
Time to work.
I've written this report for folks starting at the very bottom... or even re-starting
after an agonizing spell of frustration, confusion, or worst of all, self-doubt.
I've been there more times than I care to recount. Feeling like everything I had done
up to a certain point had all been for nothing. I had nothing to show for all of my
countless hours, hard work, optimism, and never-say-die attitude.
Seriously, nothing.
I, as an Internet marketer, have found myself in situations where I had no money, no
influence, and no hope... hell, I even had no home at one point!
But I clawed my way to the upper levels of this great business.
And now I'm in a position to help others find the traction they so desperately crave.
I'm not even talking about success yet... just the confidence in knowing that YOU
CAN succeed... and that you're taking THE RIGHT STEPS to do so!
That's a huge distinction.
I know that a lot of people jump from one thing to another to another, simply
because they never fully believed in themselves. Every action they took was first
riddled with optimism and excitement...
But within a few days' time, doubt set in and had them running for the hills.

If you can relate with this, I think you're gonna find “From the Top” to be a mighty
refreshing read. Heck, this could be the guide that finally takes you from where you
are now... to where you truly want to be.
In this meaty, power-packed resource, I'm simply gonna share with you the specific
steps that I would personally take, knowing everything that I know now, to go from
absolute zero... to earning real money online within the shortest span of time
possible. Not just peanuts, but money that a mofo can live on!
And not only that, but I want you earning this money in a way that you're fully
confident you can repeat again and again for the rest of your life... and ALWAYS get
favorable results. In other words, you're gonna have true self-confidence!
The process I'm about to share with you just plain works.
As an active contributor to various mentoring groups, I see NEW people making
this stuff work to their advantage every single day! And by that, I mean... well, they
make freakin' money! Real dollars pouring into their real Paypal accounts.
Please know that you're in extremely good hands right now...
Some of the best hands you can be in when it comes to this business, truth be told.
Sorry if that comes across as over-confidence. But it's 100% accurate.
My name is Lee Murray.
It's a pleasure to assist you.
Now let's begin...
©2015 IMWithLee.com

1. I'd Set a Goal, Define My Niche, and Master It!
The very first thing I'd do is set myself a goal, just for the sake of motivation.
I'd set a goal to be earning $50 per day ($1500 per month) beginning one month
from today. As of this writing, the date is November 24, 2014... So by Christmas Eve.
Well, let's just say that starting on January 1, I'll be bringing in $50 a day.
The very next thing I'd do would be to very clearly define my niche.
Defining Your Niche
So, knowing what I know now, I would definitely operate within the internet
marketing space. It's far and away the fastest and easiest niche to succeed in.
There's just such an immense and active community of people helping people.
You don't have nearly as many advantages in any other market.
I realize that some people have ethical hang-ups regarding this market, but let me
tell you something, possibly at the risk of over-sharing...
When I was living in a homeless shelter surrounded by 100 men who had
absolutely given up on themselves in every sense... and I was taking the city bus to
the public library in an effort to hop online and change my reality...
And my little baby boy was in another state and I missed him with the entirety of
my being. And I wept myself to sleep each night... and I stood in front of the
Spokane River entertaining the idea of throwing myself in and saying goodbye...
Those ethical hang-ups could go fuck themselves.
Just keepin' it real with you.
So again, knowing what I know today... I'd pick IM. All day.
Besides, there's nothing unethical about helping people out of situations they hate.

For all intents and purposes... we're creating jobs here! But even better. We're
changing lives in ways that a job never could.
Internet marketing would be my market... but not my niche.
A niche needs to be more specific. It's pretty difficult to be an internet marketing
expert. That means you'd have to be a master at SEO, list building, Amazon, PPC,
Clickbank, Facebook, web design, Fiverr, copywriting, Adsense, PLR, and on and on.
Nobody is an expert at all of these things, and therefore, there is no such thing as an
IM expert... which essentially means that it's not a niche.
So what I would do is pick one (or maybe 2-3) of the niches from the paragraph
before last, and I'd commit to it. Hear what I said? I would absolutely COMMIT
myself to it. Flexibility is a gem, sure. But in this case, you need to get stubborn.
I know from experience that list building, email marketing, and product creation
are the right niches for me. This is my current skill set. So I should teach them.
But wait. If I weren't already proficient in these disciplines (after all, I AM starting
over, right?), then what I'd do is go to WarriorPlus.com and do the following...
1. I'd check the listings along the right side of the page (today's top sellers).
©2015 IMWithLee.com
7
And as I've just done, I'd take a look at each of the product offers and see what
specific niches they were covering.
Then, I'd click the “Deal of the Day” button and do the same thing with each “WSO
of the Day” winner for each day of the week...
So it's a mixed bag, but there are a few top-sellers which reside within the same
niche. It may just come down to me picking something that I already have an
interest in. And here's a hint:
For anyone reading this right now who may feel like IM is not a great choice
because it's kinda icky... as in “I don't want to make money by teaching other people
how to make money by teaching other people how to make money...”
Then Amazon might be a really, really good option for you.
©2015 IMWithLee.com

Now listen, I'm not talking about you yourself necessarily becoming an Amazon
affiliate. I'm talking about teaching other people how to become successful Amazon
affiliates. That said, if you're gonna teach it, you prolly should do it, too!
In any case, I'm not trying to talk you into the Amazon niche by any stretch. I'm
simply letting you know that you've got options that may seem a little less
“unethical” or whatever.
Personally, I'd choose product creation... and by default, email marketing to the
resulting buyers lists.
I'd do this for one major reason...
Speed.
This is the type of thing that you can apply as you're learning it. In other words, you
can learn how to do this stuff... and apply what you've learned by teaching it. You
know, the whole teach others to teach others to teach others thing!
Sure, it can be viewed as an “empty calorie” of sorts. No real end user. But dude... so
what? It's fast, it works, and it legitimately helps people, oftentimes in truly lifechanging ways! And it'll help YOU in the process.
If I want to branch out into other disciplines later, cool.
But for now, if my main concern is changing my life fast, I choose product creation
and email marketing. Period. Besides, it's not like there aren't plenty of nuances and
ways to learn. This is a REAL niche with a REAL need for REAL education. So let's
fill that need, I say!
Final Answer: I Choose the Product Creation and Email Marketing Niche
So now that I've chosen a niche that I KNOW will be crazy profitable, I'm going to
move onto the next step, which is to become an absolute expert in the niche.
And just like becoming an expert in anything, this step starts by hittin' the books.

The very first place I would go to develop an expertise in my chosen field is
http://WebinarSwaps.com, which is a free Webinar directory. It's chock full of
absolute internet marketing GOLD that you can access for no cost whatsoever.
Sure, they'll pitch some shit at the end. That's the nature of most webinars. But the
free information they share before the pitch begins is what you're after.
So here's what I'd do...
©2015 IMWithLee.com
10
Then, I'd just watch these videos... up to the point where the product pitches began.
I'd take notes. Lots and lots of notes. I'd jump straight from one webinar to the next,
taking really good notes the whole way.
If I had any questions along the way, I'd jot 'em down on a separate sheet of paper
or word document. So one document for notes, another document for questions.
This is extremely important.
If I did happen to have a few bucks I could invest, I would buy a few good courses
(cheap WSO's are fine) within my niche and take notes (and jot down questions) on
these, too.
I would literally spend every waking hour doing this until I knew my niche
backwards and forward. You'd be surprised how badass you can become in a
matter of a few short days doing this.
Seriously, when I actually DID this for list building, I promise you that I knew more
about my craft-to-be than at least 80% of everyone else in the niche knew. This is
no exaggeration. In fact, it was probably closer to 90%!
©2015 IMWithLee.com
11
But I digress...
Next, after I had gone through all the relevant webinars, products, and even
YouTube videos I could find in my niche, I would read through all of my notes to
reinforce everything that I had just learned. Repetition is the mother of skill!
I would also search for any discrepencies in advice. For example, if one source had
recommended that you email your list every single day with a hard promotion...
while another resource recommended that you only send out a promotional email
once or twice a week. I'd ask “what up wit dat shit, yo?”
Except I'd make it sound all gangsta. ;)
So these discrepancies would be added to my list of questions.
I'd then take these questions over to the Warrior Forum (if you don't have an
account, stop reading this book right now and go get one) and see if other people
have asked the same questions. I'd dig in, with a genuine and powerful sense of
curiosity. I'd see how folks are answering these questions.
If I still wasn't satisfied, then I'd start a new thread and ask the questions myself. I
wouldn't just accept answers at face value. I'd dig deeper. I'd find out why people
feel the way they do. I'd present a counterpoint and see if their current position still
holds up under scrutiny. I'd get to the damn bottom of the matter! ;)
Why would I go through all this trouble?
Because facts don't sell. Well-informed opinions sell.
Let me give you an example:
Fact-based content
You can load up your autoresponder to send out emails daily, every other day, or
however frequently you'd like for your messages to go out. They will be sent out
©2015 IMWithLee.com
12
automatically, based upon when your lead was added to the autoresponder.
The emails you send can be promotional, educational, or a combination of the two.
One common type of marketing done using email is affiliate marketing. This means
that you promote somebody else's product in exchange for commissions.
You can also try CPA (cost per action) marketing, where you get paid whenever
somebody clicks a link or enters their zip code or enters their email address, etc.
Opinion-based content
While the frequency with which you load up your autoresponder is ultimately up to
you, let me make one thing crystal clear right here and now. In the IM space, people
are being bombarded with marketing emails on a daily basis. If you're not getting in
front of your audience, you can rest assured that someone else is!
Now this isn't to say that you need to hit them with a hard sell every day of the
week. In fact, I most assuredly advise against it. But a nice hybrid wherein you
share something of value and then link them to a relevant resource using your
affiliate link will serve the purposes of both relationship building and profit! ;)
Affiliate marketing is probably the quickest, easiest, and most profitable way to get
started with email marketing. CPA is cool, but it can be a drag trying to get
approved to those networks. You can go grab an affiliate link right now!
Hopefully I don't need to tell you which of these two pieces of content is more
effective at establishing user engagement. So knowing what I know now...
I would tell you that your primary job when becoming an expert in your niche is to
form lots and lots and lots of opinions on the subject. And be prepared to express
these opinions with passion, authority, and confidence.
That's what I'd do, anyway! :D
So yeah, I'd watch dozens of webinars and Youtube videos. I'd grab a few courses
©2015 IMWithLee.com
13
(free or paid). I'd take tons of notes. I'd craft tons of questions. I'd ask these
questions in the Warrior Forum. And I'd form tons of opinions as a result.
One final step if you want to establish even greater mastery...
If your niche is list building and email marketing, start signing up for as many IM
lists as you can. Hundreds. Use a separate email account. Each day, check your
inbox. See which subject lines make you wanna open, and which emails make you
want to click through. Take notes, especially on your thoughts and feelings.
Did something disgust you? Did something excite you? Did something strike you as
incredibly cheesy or “off?” Why have you had this reaction? What would you do
differently? What would you do the same? What would you do freakin' better?
List building is just one example, obviously. If your niche is blogging, then start
seeking out blogs in your niche and really examine your likes and dislikes with
them. If product creation is your thing, then buy or otherwise acquire e-books and
video courses from which to form quality opinions. And so on.
I hope you can see how powerful going through this process is.
I'd do this all day every day for 3-5 days. Longer is fine, but don't go too long. Limit
it to 10 days or less. You still have shit to do. Expertise is not a difficult, timeconsuming thing to acquire in internet marketing. It's really not.
Just follow the steps I outlined above. That's what I'd do if I were starting over.
And I'd become an overnight EXPERT in my niche. No question.
Alright, on to the next thing I'd do...
©2015 IMWithLee.com
14
2. I'd Write a Damn Book... And Some Sales Copy!
I would immediately start writing an e-book after going through the mastery
process. This is when the information is freshest, your opinions are strongest, and
your writing process is already fully engaged.
I'd waste absolutely no time working on my e-book.
That said, there are 3 very quick things I'd do before I actually dove in head-first.
1. I'd commit to a price point of $5. This is particularly important if nobody
really knows who you are yet. That would obviously be the case for me if I
were starting anew. 5 bucks is a low barrier to entry.
Also, I think it'd help me to relax knowing that the book's gonna sell for
cheap. I wouldn't feel quite so pressured to create the ultimate masterpiece
of the freakin' century. Know what I mean?
2. I'd choose a main, specific problem to solve for my readers. You don't need to
write the definitive guide to SEO, or whatever. Just a book about .edu links...
or internal site navigation... or keyword density... or blog networks...
For my chosen niche of product creation, buyers list building, and email
marketing, I'd probably write a book about how to create and sell a $5 ebook in 48 hours or less. Just like I'm about to show ya! ;)
At the end of the day, I would use the results of my mastery research to guide
me. If I found that I had a particularly strong set of opinions regarding JV
“back-scratching,” for example, then I might roll with that.
3. I'd name the e-book before I ever wrote a word. And I'd have a cover image
made up. For the example I just mentioned, I might name my book “JV
Backscratch.” Then I'd come up with a sub-headline. This would simply be
what I plan to deliver in the book.
Maybe it'd be “Together, We Get Richer!” I dunno.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
15
I'd then go to Fiverr and have a cover image created.
Well, first I'd go into Google Images and find a photo (or illustration) of
maybe a back being scratched... or a back with scratch marks on it.
Something either sexy or funny. Hmm, I like this one...
Then, I'd save this image to my computer, go over to Fiverr, and tell either
Nisha or Rdezines that I want this to be a soft (paperback) e-cover. Title:
JV Backscratch. Subtitle: Together, We Get Richer! Author: Lee Murray
If I didn't have the five dollars to pay with, I'd go donate plasma... or write
articles in a freelance capacity... or ask a family member... or panhandle with a
sign that read “Trying to Fund My Online Business. Please Help.” Whatever.
The point is, I'd be resourceful. I encourage you to be resourceful, too.
Oh, and I'd also be sure to ask the designer to give me the flat 2D image (in
addition to the 3D softcover) to use as my title page. Just scroll to the top of
this book to see what I'm talkin' 'bout, Willis.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
16
Finally, I'd get my butt to writing my e-book while the cover image was being
created for me. Post freakin' haste, baby! Let's hop to it right now...
To write an e-book that your audience is gonna absolutely LOVE, it needs to be real
(achievable), specific, easy to comprehend, and fun to read. It should also be warm
and personal. In other words, don't just spew out a bunch of facts.
Again, facts don't sell. Opinions sell. Emotion sells. Entertainment sells.
I'd probably start my book off with a joke, like the absolute abomination I kicked
this sombitch off with! ;) Or with a warm, heartfelt welcome. Who knows?
To date, I have over a dozen e-books in circulation. Five of them have been awarded
WSO of the Day. And each of them has its own unique flow. I never followed a
formula. No templates or any of that crap. I had no interest in making my stuff look
and sound like everyone else's. I encourage you to act in kind.
That said, if you really need a formula to adhere to, then I'll just tell you how I'd
write a book like “JV Backscratch.” And you can use the same general process as
your template... if you insist. :)
1. Title page – this will be the flat 2D image returned to you from Fiverr.
2. Table of contents – self-explanatory.
3. Legal page – you can basically copy the one from this e-book.
4. Introduction – I would thank my readers, start with a joke, offer a sincere
thank-you, and let them know they're in good hands. I would share my
qualifications, which at the very beginning stages, would be that I've watched
all the masters “like a hawk.”
I've done my due diligence and never took anyone's word at face value. I'd
basically brag about what I had done to become an expert. “I watched over
100 hours of product creation videos, found discrepencies in popular
opinion... and went out and hunted down the actual truth,” and so forth.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
17
I'd then tell them how what I'm about to share with them will help them.
“When you partner up with other marketers, even if you're all beginners,
incredible things can start to happen. Ideas flow. You help to get each other
traffic. You make sales for each other. You build each other's lists.” Etc.
To close the introduction, I'd encourage my readers not only to read the ebook, but also to take action. I'd then tell them to roll up their sleeves,
because we're ready to get to work right now...
5. The first chapter would cover where to find JV partners. I'd talk about the
Warrior Forum, LinkedIn, and Facebook mainly. And whatever else I'd
learned in my extensive research. ;)
6. The second chapter would cover how to treat JV partners. How to become
their actual friends, take a genuine interest in their lives, and perhaps even
talk a little trash with each other... like real friends do. I'd tell 'em that JV
partners are like an extended family of like-minded peeps.
7. The third chapter would be about pooling resources. That is, first getting a
group put together in Facebook... and then having each member of the group
go out and recruit new members to the group, so that your social circle grows
organically and virally.
8. The fourth chapter would be about everyone working together to acquire
bonus spots on their homies' download pages. (I'll actually be talking about
much of this stuff right here in “From the Top,” so stay tuned.)
9. The fifth chapter would be about scheduling product launches in a way where
all members can support each other without competing against each other.
I'd cover how helping your fellow group members serves the whole group by
getting outside traffic entering the overall funnel, etc.
I would then include a conclusion chapter, followed by recommended resources
where I'd add some affiliate links. These resources could be additional training,
software, tools, or anything else that'd help my readers enhance their results.
The conclusion chapter will generally just consist of summarizing all the steps they
©2015 IMWithLee.com
18
need to take, re-iterating why they need to take the steps, and urging them to
actually get their butts out there and do this stuff, rather than just reading.
If I were honestly just getting started online, and didn't yet have a website, then I'd
probably just not bother including a branded footer. But just in case you do have a
website, and want to know how to brand your e-book, I'm gonna go ahead and do
that with “From the Top” and share the screen shots with you.
Oh, and by the way, I personally use OpenOffice to create all my e-books. That's
what I'd be using if I were starting from scratch. It's 100% free!
So here's the process for creating a branded footer...

As far as formatting your e-book is concerned, I'll leave that up to you. You have
eyeballs. You know what looks good. Personally, I use Cambria font set to 14pt. But
options abound, kimosabe! This is YOUR book, make it look the way YOU want it to.
Once your cover gig on Fiverr has been completed, go ahead and use the flat 2D
image as your title page. Just click “Insert,” then “Picture” and “From File.” Upload
the image that you downloaded from Fiverr. Easy peasy!
So let's take a look at the top 10 e-book “best practices” that I've come to learn over
©2015 IMWithLee.com
23
the course of my almost 7 years as a professional internet marketer...
10. Maintain a logical sequence. We're walking them through an A to Z process. So
start at A. Then go to B. You may need to check a chart to see which letter
comes next. I suck at math.
9. Always encourage action. This isn't only the right thing to do, but it really
shows that you care about your readers' success. And, as a positive side
effect, it demonstrates a level of authority. You'll be looked upon as a coach.
8. Use the best grammar you can. If you don't know how to spell a word, look it
up. If you're not sure how to word a particular phrase - or which punctuation
to use - look it up. It's hard to take the message seriously when it's wrapped
in poor English. Not trying to be a dick... just keepin' it real.
7. Use lots of headlines, sub-headlines, and images.
6. Use short paragraphs. Never overwhelm your reader with giant blocks of text.
Use this book as an example. I never let a paragraph go longer than 4 lines.
And often, I'll use just one or two lines... to break it up and make things a
whole lot more digestable for my readers.
5. Don't go over their heads. If you're a smarty-pants, it's not imperative that
you show such things off. In fact, it could be detrimental. Try to write at about
a 7th or 8th grade level. Use lots of plain talk and relatable concepts.
4. As an extension of #5, it's perfectly cool to use slang. Kinda, rather than kind
of. Lemme, rather than let me. Gonna, rather than going to. Please don't
overdo it, obviously. But there is nothing wrong with showing your “regular
person” side in your writing. Your readers will find it hella refreshing. ;)
3. Be as accurate and current as possible. If you did the type of mastery research
that I illustrated above, you should have no problem with this. But if I catch
you trying to re-write some crappy, heartless old PLR, I'm gonna reach
through your computer screen and take that crack pipe outta your mouth!
2. Be playful and/or expressive. Please don't become a boring-ass “fact-ory.”
©2015 IMWithLee.com
24
Your job is not to spew facts into your readers' brains. Your job is to compel
them to take good action and get good results. Seriously. That's your job.
1. DO NOT STRIVE FOR PERFECTION! This is easily the most important piece of
advice I can offer you. A good product in the hands of 10,000 people is FAR
more powerful than a masterpiece in the hands of ZERO. Never forget that.
One final piece of advice that you can take or leave...
I really don't recommend that you become such an opportunist that you're only
looking for ways to “squeeze the most money out of your customers as possible.” I
personally hate that shit.
In other words, don't load your book up with affiliate links. One or two throughout
the content, maximum. You can also include a “Recommended Resources” chapter
at the very end, where you promote maybe 2 or 3 affiliate products.
For one thing, going berzerk with the affiliate links looks cheesy. You'll immediately
be perceived as a spammer and all that good branding and authority you were
trying to establish will go right out the damn window. Much of it will, anyway.
I want you looking at the bigger picture here, okay?
You want to establish a reputation for being a rock-solid marketer... a good person.
If you put out excellence (again, not perfection) today, then you can expect your
next book release to be a hit. And if THAT product kicks ass, then your NEXT book
release will likely be a MAJOR hit. And next thing you know, the whole world will
open up to you. Way more powerful than squeezing in a few affiliate commissions!
Dude, why don't you stop me when I go off on these rants?
That's on you, playa. :)
Alright, you wanna talk copy? Well I do, and it's my book, so...

Writing Jaw-Dropping, Insanely-Converting Sales Copy
Ah, my favorite.
Not that I'm trying to condone chemical dependency or anything, but I always drink
red wine when I write my sales copy. It's a robust, emotional buzz for me.
Did you see the key word there?
Emotional.
If your sales copy doesn't hit your prospects on an emotional level, you can expect
3-5% sales conversions. This percentage will rise in direct proportion to how much
of your prospects' deepest emotions you're able to tap into.
As with the actual e-book itself, I don't bother with templates when writing copy.
There are, however, certain key elements that you should include, which only a fool
would dare to ignore. Here's the basic flow of a winning sales letter...

Hot damn... I didn't think I had a template. ;)
What one discovers about oneself when teaching one's process...
Wow!
So there ya go.
Need a bit more detail?
Yeah, I thought you might.
But in the spirit of keeping this cheap report concise and manageable, rather than
elaborating on each of those 21 points individually, I'm just going to link you to
three of my WSO of the Day winning products.
These are products that each converted at over 15% (27% for Health Market Gold, I
believe) during their respective launches. These percentages have gone down since,
as the prices have all been dramatically increased from where they were at launch.
Know what I mean?
I want you to study these sales pages. Notice the emotion... and the structure.
You are absolutely welcome to emulate my copy in your own sales letter
construction. That said, don't even think about trying to adopt my personal style. It
is for your own benefit that you remain true to who you are. Be yourself, dammit! :)
Be a leader. An innovator. A badass.
Okay, so here are those sales pages. I hope you get a lot out of them...

If you'd like additional, fully-detailed guidance on writing top-shelf sales copy from
me, please let me know, won't you? If enough people ask for this training, I will
most assuredly create an entire copywriting course. Just go to my website (see
footer) and use my Contact form to let me know. I appreciate it.
Okay, so that's what I'd do.
I considered writing a mock sales letter for this “JV Backscratch” concept, but dude.
I get reeeeally into this stuff. I'd end up spending two days and 25 pages crafting
this sales letter... and that's time I just don't have to spend on it.
So please just use the examples I linked to above.
They'll help you immensely!
Okay, so before I move on to the NEXT thing I'd do, I want to spend a little time
answering some questions that I just KNOW a lot of my readers have at this point.
I'll also recap what we've covered thus far... and give YOU an assignment if you feel
like actually taking action on this stuff and making a profound change in your life.
Sound good?
Cool, less dew it dien...

Quick Break: Your Questions Answered, Part 1
What do you get when you cross a dirty needle with a hoo...
Oh yeah.
I forgot. Sorry.
Alright, so let's answer some questions that you may have up to this point...
Q: What should my goal be?
A: Something that puts a smile on your face when you think about reaching it... and
something that gets you almost maniacally excited because its attainment seems so
realistic to you. I obviously can't give you a specific. But it must be both exciting and
achievable. Also, be sure to set a specific timeline. “I'll make $25/day starting 3/1”
Q: Do I have to be in the IM space?
A: If you want to do what I would do (which is the basic concept of this book), then
yeah. It's the fastest, most reliable, and easily scalable market on the web.
Q: How much time should I dedicate to mastery research?
A: How long does it take a college freshman to become a medical doctor? I really
don't want to hear anyone getting impatient about becoming a master in the IM
field. By way of comparison to most professions, it's no time at all. Try 50 hours.
Q: Do I have to write a book, or can I make a video (or software) product?
A: Again, I'm showing you what I would do if I started from nothing. When I was
working from the public library, I couldn't very well create a video course, could I?
©2015 IMWithLee.com
29
That said, you're perfectly welcome to embrace your own desires and skills. Go
ahead and create a video course or software program, if that's whatcha wanna do.
Q: Lee, are you really as devilishly handsome in real life as your pictures
would suggest that you are? I mean, damn son!
A: No, I'm just drunk. That clouds your judgment and lowers your standards. ;)
Q: How long should my book be?
A: Don't worry about it. I have absolutely no clue how long “From the Top” is gonna
be when I'm finished writing the sucker. Just write, baby. Go to effin' town!
Q: What about taking payments, getting testimonials, and all that?
A: We're covering that in the next chapter.
Q: What should my Warrior Forum username be?
A: Excellent question! I'm glad you asked. You want it to be whatever name you're
branding yourself with. If that's your real name, then it should be your real name.
Remember, branding is everything. Don't try to be cute or clever. My Warrior Forum
username is Lee Murray. I suggest that you use your real name, as well.
Your Assignment:
1. Set a goal.
2. Pick a niche.
3. Gain expertise by watching vids & reading books. Ask questions. Form opinions.
4. Write a book.
5. Write your sales copy. Use my sales letters as guides.
Next thing I'd do...
©2015 IMWithLee.com

3. I'd Launch My Book As a WSO!
A Warrior Special Offer (WSO) is a very leveraged way to release a new digital IM
product (in our case, an e-book). Let me tell you why...
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
You don't need your own website... just use the forum thread!
You don't need to recruit affiliates... affiliates are built right in!
You don't need to promote your book... traffic is automatic!
You don't need to host your product... that functionality is included.
You don't need to get testimonials... that happens organically!
Saves you massive tech. time and frustration integrating your autoresonder!
You don't need to create payment buttons... the system does it all for you!
In other words, all you need to do is plug in your product and sales copy, click a few
buttons to integrate your autoresponder (covered in just a moment), and perform a
little bit of ongoing maintenance (answering thread questions, incorporating your
best reviews into your sales copy, handling customer support... easy stuff).
I'll show you how I'd do all of this right now...
First, I'd get a paid Warrior Forum account. So I'd upgrade my free account to paid.
Now, the Warrior Forum has changed ownership fairly recently, and I have no idea
what it takes to be able to run a WSO these days.
I just Googled it, but couldn't find a satisfactory answer quickly enough, and I'm
impatient. So if you're already able to run WSO's, then great. If not, then just follow
the steps I'm about to cover and – if it turns out that you need to upgrade your
account – then just do what the forum says to do.
I can't imagine it costing any more than 20-40 bucks. Don't have the money? Sell
your ass on the streets! Run a yard sale. Do some temporary labor. Get the money,
upgrade your account, and prepare for a massive positive change in your life!
Once you've got the green light to post WSO's...
©2015 IMWithLee.com
31
The very first thing you'll want to do is bypass the actual forum's “Warrior Special
Offers” section, as this will force you to use the forum's own “Warrior Payments”
program as your payment gateway and affiliate management system.
We're going old school. :)
We'll be using WarriorPlus. I'll have you sign up for a WarriorPlus account very
soon. But first, let's just get your thread approved by the forum mods, okay?
I'm about to hit you with some screen shots. But the VERY FIRST thing you MUST
do is click this link:
http://www.warriorforum.com/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=17
That's the link to post your new WSO thread WITHOUT using Warrior Payments.
Okay, so now...
*Your WSO title will be seen in the forum as the title to your thread. Make it enticing
and benefits-focused. If you're following what I would do, then make this a $5 WSO
and lead your title off with [$5 WSO] to capture the attention of value-seekers.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
32
*BBCode is the “language” that forums use to do their version of html. It uses
[braces] rather than <these tags>. Forward slashes (/) still apply. To insert an
image, the code will be [IMG]http: //imageurl. com[/IMG]. If you have an image file,
but no url, you'll need to first upload it to your site, a free blog, or dropbox.
Then just grab its new url and insert in between [IMG] and [/IMG].
©2015 IMWithLee.com
33
Wherever you want your payment button to appear, simply type in “[reserved for
payment button]” on its own line... and center it. I'll leave it up to you where you
decide to feature your button. I always just go with my gut, anyway.
While You're Waiting for Thread Approval...
It can take up to 12 hours for the moderators to approve your WSO thread.
Sometimes, it's significantly shorter. No matter, you don't have to pay and launch
until you're damn good and ready to do so. No need for any anxiety whatsoever.
So just chill, baby! ;)
Well, not really. There's still plenty of work to be done.
If it were me, and I was starting from nothing, here's what I'd do...
1. I'd get me a free account at http://WarriorPlus.com – I like this payment and
affiliate platform. I like the “WSO of the Day” (now called “Deal of the Day”)
potential. In retrospect, winning this award changed my life.
2. I'd make sure that my profile was complete, that my username was my real
name, Lee Murray (just like we discussed above in regards to our Warrior
©2015 IMWithLee.com
34
Forum account), and that my Paypal email address* was accurate.
* If you follow these steps, then Paypal is how you'll be getting paid. You need a
Paypal account. If you don't have one, get one. If you don't have a Premier or
Business account, get one. It's really easy to upgrade. Just click this link to do it.
3. Once my account was all set up, why, I'd just...

37
*$17 is what I'll likely end up selling this book for once the launch phase is over. You
can say $17 because it's a common, standard price for e-books. The sale price of $1
is what we're going to start at, but it'll be rising on a dimesale, as shown below...
©2015 IMWithLee.com
38
*My message essentially tells them that this offer is on a dimesale that caps off at 5
bucks, that they're earning 100% affiliate commissions, and that my back-end
always converts like crazy. (If I really were just starting, I wouldn't say that... but
this is my actual WarriorPlus listing for “From the Top,” so...)
In any case, you can tell your affiliates whatever you'd like. You can just say “Thanks
for the support,” if you don't feel like getting detailed. I'd also write email swipes for
my affiliates and link them to a page where they can access these swipes. You don't
have to do this either, though it is a good idea as you gain more experience.
Okay, so finally I'd...
©2015 IMWithLee.com
39
Once you've clicked save, check to make sure there were no errors. If there were,
the system will let you know what they are and you can easily go in and make the
necessary corrections. (Oh, and make sure “Deal of the Day Eligible” is turned ON!)
Alrighty-roonie, Looney Toonie!
“Lee, That Was Super Lame, Dude.”
You're super lame. Leave me alone.
Now that we got that little argument out of the way, let us proceed to literally the
most important step of the entire launch setup process... your autoresponder.
The whole purpose of this initial product launch, and the very reason why this is
the exact process that I would personally go through if I were to start my career all
over, from the very beginning, is this...
It's called building a buyers list.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
40
Now, I can tell you from experience that there is literally no more important way for
an online marketer to spend his or her time than by building an email list full of
buyers. Sure, marketing to this list is crazy important too, but they're really two
sides of the same coin, right?
So building and promoting to a high-quality buyers list can make you rich!
I know that now, which is why that's the only thing I'd be putting my time, energy,
and resources into... from DAY ONE... if I were starting all over again today.
So to do just that, I'd get myself a FREE autoresponder account at GetResponse.
It won't always be free, but it IS free for the first month, which would be plenty of
time for me to make a whole lot of money. And once GetResponse did start charging
for their service, I'd really only have to pay like 19 bucks a month anyway!
(Note: Today I pay $45 a month... and I have a buyers list of 3500!)
Now, you'll hear people say that each free subscriber you put on your list is worth
about a dollar per month to you... and that each buyer is worth about $10/month.
Well, I don't know about that. I certainly don't make 35k each month! :D
But I'm up to about $8000 on a really good month... half of that on a “bad” month.
That said, I also don't do everything I could to make the really big bucks. I don't
have a solid group coaching program or high-ticket membership site. I just
essentially sell my own stuff, promote affiliate offers, and do some 1-on-1 coaching
every so often. So take all that for what it's worth.
But I digress...
What I would do is click this link and get started with a free month of GR right now!
It's the most important tool you'll ever get for free!
Once I had my free GetResponse account, I'd login and go to my dashboard. From
there, I'd go ahead and...

Finally, I'd...

52
At this point, I'd go back into my WarriorPlus product listing and add my new
autoresponder campaign. Like this...
©2015 IMWithLee.com
53
So if you've been following along up to this point, you will now have:
A goal
A niche
Dozens of pages of notes
Real, rock-solid expertise
An e-book
A sales letter
A pending WSO thread
A WarriorPlus (WSO Pro) product page
A free GetResponse account linked to this product page
A welcome email
Excitement in your belly!
So what's the next step?
For you, it honestly depends. If you wanted to leave this process as-is, you totally
could. You'd just wait for your thread to be approved, insert your actual payment
button code (from WarriorPlus) into your thread in place of the “[reserved for
payment button]” placeholders you created, and freakin' launch away!
Another step you can take (that I may or may not personally take, even if I was
starting over) would be to go into the Wanted – Warriors Looking to Hire You
©2015 IMWithLee.com
54
section of the Warrior Forum. I don't need to tell you what to write. You'll see
LOADS of other product creators asking people to review their shizzy!
Just write similar things.
Then, you'll have some built-in testimonials coming in to your thread. I'm not sure
if I'd do that, even starting from scratch, simply because I don't know how much
weight those types of reviews really hold. It's totally up to you.
Another option might be to try contacting bigger product creators (not me, please
leave me alone... I already have half a dozen or more people each and every day
asking me to review their stuff! ;) But try contacting those who may not have the
same blessing/curse. Haha!
Not trying to be mean, but damn. White boy can only handle so much.
But yeah, you'll just hand out a few free copies... and once you decide to make your
thread go live (covered momentarily), you'll give these reviewers your WSO thread
URL and have them drop their reviews.
You can then take screen shots of the positive reviews, upload them to your site,
dropbox, a free blog, or whatever... and then insert them into your sales letter for
social proof. Remember to use BBCode [IMG]image url starting with http[/IMG].
Now comes a very, very important consideration.
This will come down to two things: patience and resourcefulness.
The consideration is this:
To Upsell Or Not to Upsell
My first successful launch was for a product called “Sales Funnel Supreme,” which
was actually a $5 WSO! The very day I launched it (actually later that night), it was
awarded “WSO of the Day.” I was paying 100% commission... and had no upsell.
The sales started pouring in! I believe I ended up making over 400 sales just from
©2015 IMWithLee.com
55
WarriorPlus alone. Actually, let me check my stats...
So yeah, Mike Lantz (the man behind WarriorPlus) alone made 449 sales. Overall,
Sales Funnel Supreme sold 1100 copies! But without a back-end, I made very little.
I had my own small freebie list that, combined with direct forum traffic, was
responsible for a nice little chunk of sales... maybe 200. But those other 900 sales
came from affiliates that I paid out 100% commissions too. No money in my pocket!
In all, I may have made a thousand bucks from non-affiliate generated conversions.
A nice little payday... but what if I'd have had an upsell (OTO) funnel in place?
I didn't wanna wait to find out.
Fortunately, Sales Funnel Supreme was one of four e-books that I had written. The
other e-books just weren't all the way finished when I got WSO of the Day. So as the
sales started pouring in, I was frantically working on finishing them.
It was something I had planned on doing anyway. I was just procrastinating it. I had
NO IDEA that I was gonna get WSO of the Day! So I scrambled like crazy.
Then, I had to write the upsell sales page.
Took hours and hours.
And those front end sales were just FLAVORING my life with bittersweetness.
Finally, I finished the upsell and made it go live. Here's what happened.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
56
So of the $5,245.25 that Sales Funnel Supreme generated, I earned a grand.
But the OTO (and the downsell – which is listed as OTO2, and took me next to no
extra time to put in place) were paying out 50% to affiliates, rather than 100%.
So I actually made well-over half of that revenue (remember, not all sales were
generated by affiliates)... so I actually put around $1500 in my pocket for those lateto-the-party upsells! Damn, if only I'd have put them in place BEFORE the WSOTD!
Anyway, we live and we learn, right?
Click Here to See My VERY First WSO – Sales Funnel Supreme!
It's kinda interesting for me to go back and see what my thought process was like
back then. I wasn't even all that successful at that point. It could be a good thing for
you to model. Notice how I was less BraggyPants then than I am now! :)
Anyway, let's get back to the heart of the matter...
What Do YOU Wanna Do?
It's not like launching without an upsell only comes with cons, and no pros.
For starters, it's obviously much faster to get started without one. Also, for
©2015 IMWithLee.com
57
whatever reason, a lot of customers really LOVE it. Check some of the comments in
my SFS thread. Some folks tend to equate not having an upsell with being ethical.
In their minds it's like “Now here's someone who's really trying to help... and isn't
just trying to make a bunch of money and make us jump through a bunch of hoops.”
This may earn you some trust.
And that's very good for your future email marketing endeavors.
If I were starting over from scratch, I would absolutely put an upsell funnel in place.
I'd go three deep, and one of them would be a recurring income product.
But I guess that's easy for me to say... I've already got everything in place to do that.
It takes a lot of time and effort to get to that point.
So maybe skip it?
I dunno. Again, I'll leave it up to you.
The bottom line is that there will be future launches. And you will have upsells as
time goes on. This may be a situation where you need to be impatient about
launching... and patient in regards to offering upsells.
Remember, priority #1 is to build a buyers list. And you can do that just fine
without any OTO's. That said, if you're REALLY desperate for immediate cash, then
an OTO or two may be just what the doctor ordered. I'm not in your situation, so I
don't know. But...
Let's go ahead and cover it real quick-like either way!
Sound good?
Okay, so...
There are a number of different types of upsell that you can offer. Some will be
more time consuming than others. Heck, some will take next to no time at all... right
©2015 IMWithLee.com
58
now, anyway. Some will be low-ticket offers, others will garner higher price-points,
and others still can earn you an ongoing income for months or years to come.
You can offer:
Another pdf or bundle of pdfs
The audio and/or video version of your e-book
Other video/audio
More detailed training on the same topic as your main offer
Software
A service (ie. blog installation, content, squeeze pages, graphics, etc.)
A monthly membership
Group or 1-on-1 coaching
FB group access
A JV partner's offer (split the profits)
PLR or MRR rights to your e-book
Other PLR content
An interview with an expert (or “guru”) in your niche
I would personally go with “other plr content,” “a monthly membership,” and
“another pdf or bundle of pdfs” for my own upsell funnel.
All I can do is live in the present, so I'll offer my award-winning “Email Slick”
program at a discount for all new “From the Top” customers.
As an upsell/downsell to that, I'll offer 49 DFY emails that I've personally written
for this purpose. And as an upsell/downsell to that, I'll offer my weekly DFY promo
email service ($19.95/mo., half-order downsell for $9.95/mo).
You can create sales letters or sales videos for each.
I love to write, so I usually just write compelling sales letters, which is exactly what
I'd do if I were starting over from scratch (especially if I were working from the
public library)!
At this point, however, I already have most of the sales materials at my disposal. So
I'll just modify a few things and get it all set up and ready to blast!
©2015 IMWithLee.com
59
Oh, one more definite positive of having an upsell funnel in place...
Affiliates, affiliates, affiliates!
Some potential affiliates really won't even consider promoting a product if the
earnings potential isn't high enough. And without a back-end offer set up, the most
an affiliate stands to earn by promoting your $5 WSO is... well... five dollars!
That's not gonna excite many good affiliates.
But if you offer 50% commissions on a $19.95 upsell, now your affiliate can make
up to $15 total per sale. If you have two of these 20-dollar upsells, your affiliate can
make up to $25. And if you add a $19.95 per month recurring offer...
Get ready to approve a WHOLE LOT of affiliate requests, put tons and tons of buyers
on your list, and make some pretty nice upfront profits in the process!
Damn, I'm a confusing sombitch. ;)
My final answer...
If you have the time and patience to put together an upsell funnel, it is very wellworth it for you to do so!
In WarriorPlus, we'll be using “Offers” to set this all up. Lemme show you how:
Alright, so I guess I forgot to mention... you're really gonna need to have a website.
That means a domain, hosting, and Wordpress. You could use a free blogging
platform like Blogger or Wordpress.com for this, but I totally wouldn't.
Too risky. Too unprofessional. Trust me, you wanna go self-hosted.
Now because I am, indeed, so confusing... let me just tell you that, if you don't
happen to have a website at this point (nor do you already know how to set a selfhosted Wordpress site up), go to page ___ of this book right now. Then come back! ;)
©2015 IMWithLee.com
60
Again, if you DON'T already have a website (domain name, hosting account,
Wordpress site), then GO TO PAGE ___ OF THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW!
Remember, you're on page 61 right now. Please return after you've gotten
yourself set up with your own self-hosted Wordpress site. Thank you.
The following instructions are pre-supposing that you already have an active
website with Wordpress installed and all your settings and configurations done.
Here's what I'd do...
First, I'd obviously determine how many upsells I have. I'm running three.
Next, I'd create one sales page for each of these three upsells. (Three pages total.)
I would create these sales pages using Wordpress. I used to use HTML pages, but
Wordpress seems faster and easier to me... plus I use the Video Effects Press theme,
which makes my pages look pretty stinkin' great!
You can create sales letters, sales videos, a combination of the two, or use a letter
for one OTO, a video for the next... whatever you want to do.
I see a lot of people simply creating a short video with a buy button and “no thanks”
link directly underneath it. This is a quick and easy way to go about things. There
are plenty of examples of these online. You've probably got many of these upsell
video pages bookmarked in your browser right now. ;)
I actually just recorded my first one using my computer's built-in webcam.
Seriously, no third-party software. Just recorded it straight to my computer,
uploaded it to YouTube, and embedded it into my sales page. Super easy.
You can learn how to do such things online, so I won't waste your time here.
Now, just like we did before with our main front-end WSO thread in the Warrior
©2015 IMWithLee.com
61
Forum, wherever you'd like to feature your payment buttons on your upsell pages,
simply use the “[reserved for payment button]” placeholder for now. Then, go
ahead and publish each of your Wordpress sales pages.
Remember, you don't want these pages to be posts, or even pages where they'll be
publicly displayed on your site. DO NOT make these part of a blog. We're not
creating a blog here at all!
Find a good landing page theme. There are Wordpress themes designed exclusively
for the purpose of creating landing pages (sales, squeeze, and download pages).
Some of these themes are paid... but many of them are free or very, very cheap.
Again, I love my Video Effects Press... but it's a bit on the expensive side ($37).
A quick and easy Google search for things like “Wordpress sales page themes” or
“landing page themes for Wordpress” will make good things happen for you. :)
Now, I'd Add My Upsell Products to WarriorPlus:
Once I'd gotten all my sales pages set up, I'd go back into WarriorPlus and set up
each of my upsell products individually. I'd do this in exactly the same way that we
set up our original $5 WSO.
You can run dime sales, if you'd like. I won't personally do that. I'll use set pricing.
My 49 DFY Emails upsell will sell for $19.95 (50% off).
My “Email Slick” program will sell for $13.50 (50% off).
My DFY Promo Email Service will sell for $19.95 per month recurring.
Be sure to upload the delivery files to WarriorPlus, rather than using delivery url.
If you'd like to create separate email campaigns in GetResponse for each of your
upsells, you can. Or just leave all that blank and your front end offer will be the only
sales that put leads on your list. I'll do a new campaign for each. :)
My first campaign is fromthetop, my second will be fromtopwithemails, etc.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
62
Make sense?
So again, I'll use WarriorPlus' autoresponder integration feature to link this up.
Once all of the upsells have been loaded up into the WarriorPlus system as
“Products,” it's time to move on to the next essential task...
Finally, I'd Construct My WarriorPlus Offer:
This can be a little tricky to get a grasp on initially. I've done it a few times now, so I
“kind of” know what's up. If I were just starting from scratch, I'd undoubtedly have
to go through a slight learning curve with this particular functionality.
Lots of moving parts and what-not.
But lucky for you, you've got big, bad Poppa LeeLee to walk you through this shit!
Whatever, dude.
Whatever.
So here's what I'd do...

I would then just keep repeating this process for all of the products in my upsell
funnel, clicking “add a new page” and the little black cross thingy to link 'em up.
I'm gonna do this for the rest of my products right now. There will be a downsell at
the end, and I'll show you how to handle that, as well. ;)
©2015 IMWithLee.com
69
Oh, you know what?
I'm actually doing a downsell for each product in my OTO funnel. I hope I can
explain this sufficiently...
1. People go to my $5 WSO thread. If they buy, they're taken to OTO1, which is
my 49 DFY emails.
2. If they buy, they're taken to OTO2, which is “Email Slick” for 50% off. This, of
course, is called an upsell. But... if they don't buy OTO1, they're still taken to
OTO2. Naturally, this called is a downsell.
3. If they buy OTO2, they're taken to OTO3 (upsell), which is my weekly IM
promo service. If they don't buy OTO2, they're still taken to OTO3 (downsell).
4. If they buy OTO3, that's it. The funnel ends there. There are no additional
upsells. However, if they don't buy, then they're presented with OTO4, which
is my promo service half order. So no upsell, but there is a downsell.
Ultimately, my funnel looks like this: main product > upsell only > upsell and
downsell > upsell and downsell > downsell only.
To create a downsell, instead of using the black crosses, use the red ones. By the
way, once you've successfully added an upsell, the black cross will become an
upward-pointing black arrow. When you've successfully added a downsell, the red
cross will become a downward-pointing red arrow. Handy, right? ;)
Next, I'd start incorporating my payment buttons, “no thanks” links, and exit pops.

We won't do this with the main offer until our WSO thread goes live. But we can do
this with all of the upsell (and downsell) pages on our site. So let's do it...

Then, we'd make sure there was no pesky “step 6” and just move straight to 7...

Now, go back into WarriorPlus and...
And...
©2015 IMWithLee.com
76
Now, you'll repeat this process for any and all of your upsells and downsells.
Is it a lot of work?
Oh HELL YEAH!
But it's a whole lot faster & easier to go through these steps than it is to go through
all these steps and take screen shots and commentate in text the entire way! ;)
On other words, you can do it.
Finally, once your thread is approved by the mods, you'll pay 20 bucks, it goes live,
you'll integrate your payment button into your sales copy (over your placeholders),
and you'll be the first to comment on your thread with “reserved for FAQ.”
That's what I'd do, anyway!

Holy crap, this is gonna be a long book.
When I first started writing it, I though it'd be around 20 pages.
I just get so passionate about and involved in this stuff.
I sincerely hope you feel that you're being served, rather than bombarded. It's
important to me that I “give it all” to you... but I don't wanna overwhelm you.
Know what I mean?
It can be a difficult line to discern.
Anyway, we'll let this sleeping dog lie and move ahead to the next thing I'd do...

4. I'd Make Tons of Fast Friends and Bonus It Up!
Alright, so we've covered a TON of ground up to this point.
And I really don't want to give either of us more to do than is necessary to get the
ball rolling and build some income, momentum, and confidence.
So I'll just say that this step is really an ongoing type of thing.
When I first started in this business, perhaps the biggest mistake I made was that I
wanted to go it alone. I wanted it to be all about me, me, me. I had heard of IMers
working in concert with others and being all buddy-buddy with each other.
“Not for me,” I thought. “I just got outta the restaurant business. I'm sick of people. I
just want to earn my fortune by myself, behind the scenes.”
For me, the fortune never came.
So if I were starting all over from scratch, with no money, list, website, influence,
products, or friends... the first stuff I'd work on would be products, list, and friends.
We've already got the first two of these items tackled. So let's tackle the third.
First, let's take a very quick look at why it's important to make friends with other
marketers online:
You build a support system. While your family members and “real friends”
may not understand what it is that you do (and how tough it can be), your
marketing buddies will understand where you're coming from very clearly.
You become part of a “brotherhood” of sorts. You'll feel a sense of pride and
belonging that you could never feel going it alone.
You'll learn so much. Whenever one of your buddies stumbles upon a new
discovery (perhaps he or she went through a course that you didn't... or tried
something uncommon), this discovery will most likely be shared with the
©2015 IMWithLee.com
79
group. Moreover, y'all can ask and answer questions, strategize, etc.
You can strike JV deals with each other. This is perhaps the most profound
reason to make friends and start (or join) some groups. When your friend has
a launch, you can promote it to your list. When you have a launch, all your
friends can promote it to their lists. It's beautiful. You all get rich together!
You have ready-made resources. Perhaps one of your friends is a kickass
graphics designer who will cut you a tremendous discount on a gorgeous
sales page. Perhaps you're great at copyrighting and can strike a barter deal.
The more friends you have, the more friends you make. Remember, each
person you meet and befriend online very likely knows other marketers that
you don't yet know... and those new friends can pull in more new friends, etc.
There are other reasons, I'm sure.
But this should drive the point home that positioning yourself within a high-quality,
ever-growing IM social circle is a very good idea.
If I were just starting from scratch, I would absolutely embrace this fact. And after
embracing it, I would begin to take immediate action. Here's what I'd do...
Step One: I'd Go Facebook Crazy!
In retrospect, I wouldn't have used my personal Facebook account to do this. I
would have created a separate account exclusively for my online business dealings.
The reason for this is that I have A LOT of smart-ass friends in the non-IM world.
You know, all my high school and musician buddies, etc. So now I'm always afraid of
posting any kind of marketing message because who knows what one of those loud
mouth freakenheimers is gonna chime in with? :)
So if I were starting from scratch, I'd start a separate Facebook account. But I'd still
use my real name, Lee Murray. Nothing more, nothing less, nothing cute.
Remember, it's all about that branding!
©2015 IMWithLee.com
80
Then, I'd just start looking up other marketers of whom I was aware. Perhaps
friends I already have on the Warrior Forum. Maybe I'd start entering the names of
people whose lists I was on. Or customers of my freshly-launched WSO.
(In fact, I'd probably go back into my OpenOffice document, insert a few
mentions of my Facebook address, and ask my readers to “Friend” me. Then,
I'd convert it to pdf and re-upload my product to WarriorPlus.)
I'd send friend requests (I'll spare you the screen shots... no doubt you already
know how to do this shizzy) to all the people I find. But not only that, I'd visit their
pages and look at THEIR friends. I'd discover which of their friends were marketers,
and which ones weren't. I'd send friend requests to all the IMers I could find.
The more, the merrier.
Likewise, I'd spend time on these people's pages to see which groups they were
subscribed to. I'd start requesting to join as many of these groups as possible...
especially the larger groups!
And at this point, I'd just do this.
Sure, there are other things a person can do to extend their reach. You can create
your own group (recommended – learn how), your own fan page... and then go
crazy joining as many LinkedIn groups as you can and getting as many of your LI
and FB contacts as possible to come join YOUR group, where you can direct traffic.
But I don't think that's where I'd spend all my time initially.
I think I'd be content just using my new business Facebook account as my base of
operations. Less work, less hassle, and when you start getting thousands of
marketing friends... the world is your oyster.
Embrace simplicity when doing so is a quality option.
That's what I'd do, anyway.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
81
Step Two: I'd Go Value Crazy!
I'd start participating on my timeline. You'll see these other marketers' feeds in
your timeline... you know the drill. Many of them will be personal, sharing pics and
stories of their kids, spouses, pets, etc. Like and comment as you would normally.
Always be kind and gracious.
If it's a marketing-related message, like it. Then ask yourself “Is there an
opportunity here for me to assist this person? Can I invest my time, assistance,
expertise, advice, etc. and provide real value to this person right now?”
If so, then feel free to do so.
Remember, you want to build genuine friendships here. These aren't just marketers,
they're people. And people have real hopes, dreams, fears, and concerns... just like
you do! If you want others to step up to the plate and help you succeed in your biz,
then you can rest assured that there are folks out there who would LOVE your help!
Be a force for good, homie. ;)
Also, be sure to update your own status relatively often. At least a couple times per
day. And again, be a regular person. Don't be all Markety McMarketballs. That sucks.
If you do talk about marketing, don't just spam your needs all over the damn place,
okay? Link to cool, inspirational videos on YouTube. Talk a little philosophy. Be a
cool mofo. Ask stuff. Elicit genuine discussion. Have fun and be fun. Your new FB
friends will come to know you... and love you.
That's what I'd do, anyway.
Step Three: I'd Go Review and Bonus Crazy!
Once I'd been participating in Facebook for a while (maybe 3-4 days or so), I'd post
a “review copy” message on my status. Now remember, I wouldn't be doing this
pre-launch. My WSO would already be live and generating sales.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
82
As an additional mention in my post, I'd ask other marketers who happen to have
an upcoming launch if they need a good bonus product to include with their offer.
My actual post would probably look something like this:
Hey all, I've got 10 bonus copies of my brand new “Sales Funnel Supreme” WSO. It
challenges the notion that the money is in the list... and puts the pressure on your
sales funnel! Anyway, the first 10 people to reply are in. I'll send you your review copy
and the thread url in a private message.
Also, if there are any product creators out there with upcoming launches, please
consider “Sales Funnel Supreme” as a worthy bonus to add value to your offer,
increase conversions, and help your customers achieve even greater results. Let me
know if you're interested... I may even mail for your offer, if it's a good fit.
Thanks for reading, y'all! ;)
Obviously, the more people you've befriended up to the point of sending this
message, the better your results will be. Also, if you've taken the time to establish
rapport in any of the groups you've joined, you can post this message there, too.
You've got options.
Remember, I don't believe in giving too many detailed, step-by-step instructions.
You never know what kinds of results you're gonna get... and what kinds of cool
doors are gonna open up for you. If you're adhering too tightly to a set-in-stone
script, then you're gonna miss out on some golden opportunities.
Let your successes take you where they will. It's a beautiful thing.
That's what I'd do, anyway! ;)
©2015 IMWithLee.com
83
A Few Important Notes About This Process...
If you don't get your 10 reviewers, you can simply send out a reminder post. Be
friendly. If that doesn't work, maybe you just don't have enough friends yet. :(
When joining groups, really favor the groups that have to do with WSO launches,
product creation, etc. In a close second would be groups that have to do with your
specific niche (i.e. Amazon, list building, SEO, etc.) directly.
Your best best for this process, however, will definitely be WSO launch-specific
groups. Here is where you'll find the most active product launchers who will be far
more responsive to your bonus offer than pretty much anyone else.
So what's with the bonus anyway?
This is absolutely huge!
My friend Shane Farrell calls it “Bonus Buyers Profits.” My other partner in crime,
Phil Steptoe, calls it “Buyers List Arbitrage.” Essentially, this is a form of list building
that fills your GetResponse account up with buyers...
But you don't actually sell anything!
You offer your product-creating IM buddies a high-value free bonus (one that's
currently selling as a WSO) to their fresh customers. These customers, who just
PAID MONEY for an IM product, are then presented with a link to your squeeze
page, where they opt in to claim their “free” bonus.
These people don't end up on your list because they were looking for a freebie.
They end up on your list because they're proven buyers who are cashing in on a
little extra value promised to them by the person from whom they bought.
Make sense?
Okay, so there are a few things you're going to need to make this strategy work.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
84
And these things will require an investment, although it will be a small one.
You'll be well-served to get these tools now:
A hosting account
A domain name
A GetResponse account (you should already have one at this point)
Video Effects Press (optional)
Let's take a look at each of these individually...
A Hosting Account:
I personally use HostGator. Have for years. I highly recommend them. Their support
is absolutely fantastic and their dependability is first class.
What you want to do, if you don't already have hosting, is go to Hostgator.com and
look at their hosting packages. I strongly recommend you go with the Baby plan. It's
cheap, good, and lets you host as many domains as you want!
I personally get 6 month billing (costs me like $55 every 6 months), but you can go
yearly, monthly... whatever you want to do. If you don't have money for hosting, run
a lemonade stand for a day or two... or grab your loose change and take it to a
Coinstar, where you can have it deposited right into your Paypal account! ;)
A Domain Name:
I get my domains from Godaddy. Many of my friends swear by Namecheap. I don't
really think it makes a difference. Just make sure that you find an online promo
code and use it at checkout.
As far as the domain name you select, if YourName.com is available, that'll do, pig.
Otherwise, just play with names in your head. My domain name is List Building
With Lee dot com. Kinda long. If I were starting over from scratch, I'd probably
come up with something more concise. IMWithLee.com is available...
Gosh damned hindsight!
©2015 IMWithLee.com
85
You know, I may just grab that anyway. I kinda like it better than LBWL... plus I do
so much more than list building these days. I just talked myself into it. I'll even
change the footer of this book! And now I'll show you some screen shots...
©2015 IMWithLee.com
86
©2015 IMWithLee.com
87
©2015 IMWithLee.com
88
I could've even gotten a cheaper domain. Right after paying for this, I went to close
out the Google search results page and noticed a $1.49 .com promo code! Ah well, I
spent $1.50 for the speed of just getting' the show on the road!
Money well-invested. ;)
Okay, so if you're following along, go ahead and complete the checkout process and
put your new domain name smack-dab in the center of your life.
I'll show you how to hook your domain name up to your hosting account in just a
moment. First, let's cover the last two tools that you'll need.
A FREE GetResponse Account:
You should absolutely already have this, if you've been following along with this
program. If you don't yet have a GR account, get started here – again, it's free!
And that's all I have to say about that.
Video Effects Press (optional):
VEP is a great Wordpress theme that makes really beautiful looking video
background landing pages. I use it for all of my sales pages, squeeze pages, JV pages,
download pages... everything, really!
You don't have to get this theme. It's not exactly cheap, unless you think $37 is
cheap. You can absolutely go with a free alternative theme. But if you've got the
cash, I can't recommend VEP any more fervently. The OTO (15 more videos), too!
If you peeped my “Email Slick” sales page earlier, then you already saw VEP in
action. You can also see my “White Hot List 2” squeeze page by clicking this link.
This is what you can do with VEP.
But again, if you don't want it or can't bring yourself to make the investment at this
time, you can use any squeeze page template you like. Wordpress, HTML... whatever
you're comfortable with. That said, I do recommend Wordpress for this process.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
89
If I were starting from scratch, knowing what I know today, I would go donate blood
a few times... or write some articles or emails for another marketer... and I would
buy Video Effects Press and the 15 background videos OTO!
That's what I'd do, anyway.
And I'd do it because every day, I have subscribers and customers telling me how
much they enjoyed being on my pages. Since switching to VEP, my conversions have
skyrocketed. If you get it, I have no doubt that you'll gladly use it for years to come.
Sorry for the pitch. I just personally dig it a bunch. It's natural enthusiasm, baby!
Okay, so are you ready to watch me put all this crapola together?
Now, I don't currently have any partners lined up with whom to run “From the Top”
as a bonus offer. Heck, I haven't even launched the son of a bitch yet. It'd be kinda
weird if I did, wouldn't it? Considering I'm still writing it and all. ;)
But I'll just pretend that I do have a bonus partner lined up.
“C'mon, Lee... You Big Knucklehead... Hop to It and Do It!”
Ummmm... okay.
The first thing I'm gonna do is link up my new domain to my hosting account.
Naturally, I already have hosting. I can't remember if the process for doing this is
different for a brand new hosting account. Actually, I'm quite sure that it is.
If you're using a brand spankin' new hosting account, just follow their step by step
instructions. They'll get you set up quickly and easily. Nothing to it.
If you have a pre-existing hosting account, then watch these video instructions on
how to get yourself set up properly. This is a series of videos I've pulled from
YouTube to show you how to point your nameservers to Hostgator from GoDaddy,
add your domain to Hostgator, set up your email address, and install Wordpress.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
90
After you've watched the videos and followed the instructions you were given, first
of all... pat yourself on the damn back! Nicely played, my friend. I'm incredibly
impressed by your action. You should feel pretty amazing about yourself right now.
That's real.
After you've acknowledged yourself for being the absolute badass that you are, go
ahead and proceed to the next steps.
Attention: These steps walk you through what I would personally do, which
entails uploading and using Video Effects Press. If you choose not to invest in
and/or use this particular Wordpress theme, please follow along anyway... the
actual squeeze page content and organization stuff will still apply to you!
If you do wish to try Video Effects Press, you can pick it up through this link.
Okay, so go ahead and login to your Wordpress dashboard. Then...

Okay, so again... if you choose NOT to use VEP, that's totally fine. What I would do is
search online for free landing page templates... in particular, Wordpress themes.
There's all kinds of stuff out there... you've just gotta be resourceful.
Once you've found a theme that you really enjoy, just follow the same basic steps
outlined above, sans the VEP-specific ones, obviously. The squeeze page creation
steps below will still apply, no matter which theme you've decided to use...
©2015 IMWithLee.com
100
Of course, since I would personally use VEP, some steps specific to that particular
theme will also be included. I trust that you're smart enough to extract the
information that's relevant to your situation as you proceed through the steps. ;)
Okay, so let's continue...
*Just use whatever words you need to use to convey the product vendor's name
and/or their product name + your product name + bonus. Using initials are fine.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
101
*Earlier, I told you to only copy one file url, and that it didn't matter if it was for
the .mp4 or .webm file. Here's where that comes into play.
Simply paste the same url into both boxes, then change the extension on the
“wrong” file url. In other words, if you copied the .webm file url, then paste it into
both boxes, but in the .mp4 box, change the .webm at the end of the url to .mp4.

103
Okay, so right now, I'm going to give you a basic template to use, okay?
You can literally copy this and paste it right into your Wordpress page. Just make
sure that, before you paste it in, you select the “text” tab, as shown here...
Okay, so here's the template I want you to copy and paste into your page...
©2015 IMWithLee.com
104

5. I'd Promote Affiliate Offers & Get Noticed!
Affiliate marketing has been hot since the Internet was born.
It's one of the easiest, most hassle-free ways to earn a living online.
I love its guts.
As such, over the years, I've kinda made it my bitch. ;)
The trouble is, most people getting started online want to start with affiliate
marketing, which is truly ass-backwards. I get it though. It's seductive.
You don't need to create the product.
You don't need to handle customer support.
You don't need to process refunds.
You don't need to write any sales copy.
You don't need to put together an upsell funnel.
Upsell funnels are usually put in place for you, for maximum commissions.
You usually make more money per sale than the product vendor.
Super affiliates are super freakin' rich!
Again, I totally get it.
But consider this...
How many affiliates do you know who get over 20-30% (and sometimes even
upwards of 40%) sales conversions... without being a trusted authority in their
niche? That is, how many non-product creators pull these kinds of numbers?
None? Almost none?
Well... I do.
My product-creating compadres do, too.
©2015 IMWithLee.com
107
So if you're following along with me in this guide, then this is the perfect place to
begin your affiliate marketing career. Not before you've created your WSO!
In fact, if you've been following along, congratulations! You've set yourself up for
the best kind of affiliate marketing going... reciprocal affiliate marketing!
Yep, now that you've got a large (and ever-growing) community of IM friends on
Facebook (and possibly LinkedIn), you can begin to cross-promote each other's
products. With one MAJOR caveat...
You never, ever want to promote garbage.
The only online relationships that are more important than the relationships you
have with your friends, JV's, and other fellow marketers are the relationships that
you have with your customers... and with your email list! Don't ever forget that.
As such, you want to actually make sure that you're going through any product you
consider promoting to them. Check the quality... the comprehensibility, accuracy,
personability, uniqueness, and actionability all need to meet your high standards.
And it needs to be relevant to your niche. So like if you're in the Amazon niche, you
may not wanna promote a “how to land local attorneys for SEO services” product.
Otherwise, your sales conversions will suffer.
Also, never be afraid to tell somebody that their offer just isn't right for your list...
even if they've promoted your product in the past. There are plenty of other JV's in
the sea. Or fish on the Internet. Or nice, respectable gentlemen on Bryan's mom.
(Sorry, mister... had to throw one in! You know I luh you.)
Okay, so what would I do?
First and foremost, I'd keep my damn eyes open!
People are never shy about their upcoming launches. If you've got hundreds of
marketing Facebook pals and are joined up with a few WSO and other product
©2015 IMWithLee.com
108
launch groups, you'll likely see multiple announcements daily.
In fact, today I receive promo invitations constantly. People seek me out directly
because they know my reputation. But when I was first starting out, that wasn't the
case at all. Either way, I'd keep my eyes open and see what people were offering.
Anyway, I could just go on and on about how to get the most out of your affiliate
marketing, which in our case, will be done via email. But the thing is, I've really
already covered the subject of high-level email marketing ad nauseam in my
previous works... and really have nothing to add at this point.
So what I'd really like for you to do right meow is go into your bonuses folder (it
came with this book) and open up “The Leederboard Method.” This is how I'm able
to pull the kinds of numbers I am during big launches with JV prizes to be won.
Like $790, $1350, and even $1800 for sending just 3 or 4 simple emails.
“The Leederboard Method” goes through this process in detail. So please, for your
own sake, crack that puppy open and give it a really serious looksie.
Getting Noticed
I want to keep this brief, so let me just say this...
When you position yourself on leaderboards, people take notice in a big way. This
doesn't mean that you need to win... just compete to the best of your ability.
By doing so, the product vendor will certainly take notice of you, and may very well
promote your upcoming launch (discussed in the next chapter). But you know
what? So will a lot of the other affiliates with whom you were competing!
This is why IM is such a great market for people who are just starting out online. It's
so easy to get yourself on other big marketers' radars... and the more active you are,
the more active your JV's will be. Everyone wins!
You'll start getting a ridiculous number of friend requests (from really top people)
on Facebook. Approve them all! Get on that upward spiral of fun, success, and joy.

109
That's what I'd do, anyway!
If you'd like additional email marketing training, there is no question that the finest
email marketing resource a person can invest in is my very own “Email Slick.”
I even have an ongoing weekly promo email service that can supplement and
enhance your own efforts in a major, life-changing way.
I'll link to these in the “More From Lee Murray” section at the end of this book.
For now, just get excited about the potential you now have to make it really, really
big in this here Internet marketing game.
I've seriously given you the keys to the kingdom here.
Like I said - and don't think for a second that I was bullshitting you – what I'm
showing you in this guide is precisely what I would do if I were starting from
nothing in this business. I'm leaving nothing out.
But it gets even better.
Here's what I'd do next...
©2015 IMWithLee.com

6. I'd Create & Launch a Supported Product!
So in the spirit of keeping this book somewhat manageably sized, I'm just gonna
really quickly give this to ya in a concise, hard-hitting manner.
What I would do is, just like with my $5 WSO, create a good product based upon my
newly-acquired expertise... and possibly some newfound personal experience.
I'd write another e-book most likely, but you could do a video course or whatever.
You know the drill. ;)
I'd follow all the same launch steps that we covered in chapters 2 and 3. But this
time, I'd make sure to hand out review copies well-before I went live.
I'd also check sites like Muncheye.com and JVNotifyPro.com to intelligently pick a
launch date that wasn't absolutely riddled with stiff competition.
Then, I may or may not create a JV page.
I've done the whole JV page, Muncheye thing in the past and it's helped. But it can
be a lot of extra work. For “From the Top,” I'm just launching the sucker... no JV page
or anything... I may offer email swipes, if I have the time to write 'em up.
For now, let's just skip the JV page.
I may share the process in a future update, but it's really not necessary. Just let
people know when you're going live. Send out reminders. I'm probably no better at
this stuff than you. It's not my strong suit. So I'd just wing it.
The important people that I'd contact directly would be the product vendors whose
products I've promoted... and the affiliates with whom I was in competition during
any leaderboard contests that I happened to rock.
I'd seek them out on Facebook and in the WF and just tell them what was up.

Details I'd include would be:
The title of my upcoming release
What it's about
Who it's designed to help
When it's launching (date and time... I'd shoot for Sunday night at midnight)
The front-end price, including any dimesale details
The front-end commission
The nature of the back-end funnel, including prices
The back-end commissions
Review access is available
Any marketing tools (email swipes, banners, etc.)
Any specials, rewards, bonuses, prizes, etc.
I'd also offer bonus spots to the first four people who agreed to promote, in the
order that they agreed. I'll show you how I'd put this all together in a moment.
Finally, anytime a person of favorable repute agrees to promote for you, feel free to
brag about this to others. “Hey, this launch is gonna be great... I've got Lee Murray
and Bryan Harkins on board for this one. I'd love to have your support, too.”
Know what I mean?
So that's what I'd do, and as far as offering bonus spots to my promoters, here's
how I'd go about doing it...
1. I'd have my partners (about 3 or 4, no more) each pick one of their paid
products that we both agree would be a good fit for my main offer.
2. I'd have each of them create a squeeze page where their product was
available for free... as YOUR bonus.
3. I'd link to these bonuses on my download page. I'd also include the links in
my welcome email. I may even create a pdf with their squeeze page links in it
and add this to my “bonuses” folder and include it with my main product,
which would be packaged in a zip file. If you don't know how to do this, learn.

It's really that simple.
Argh, I hate it when I'm done with a chapter but it ends all the way at the top of a
new page. I guess I could go and find a funny-ass pic for you to look at...
S_meb_dy sh_uld give her a c_py _f “Fr_m the T_p.”
That's what I'd do, anyway! ;)
But what'd be the next thing I'd do?
Hmmm....

7. I'd Keep My Foot On the Gas Until I Was Rich!
At this point, there is no question that I would have achieved an inspirational level
of success. Perhaps I'd have earned a WSO of the Day award or two (and if you've
been following along, then you may very well have done the same).
Well guess what...
Now is no time to relax!
Arguably the biggest mistake that an IMer can make in their career is to stop just
when things are gettin' good. That's where the whole “shiny object syndrome” thing
comes into play. They experience a wee tiny bit of success doing one thing, but
instead of getting excited and scaling it, they get frustrated with the small results...
And move onto the next big thing.
The only problem is, for over 90% of would-be IM greats, this cycle never ends...
until the day they quit all this “pie in the sky” bullshit and re-enter the “real world.”
Sad.
So I wouldn't even think about letting up.
In fact, you wanna know what I'd do? I'm assuming you do, given the fact that
you're on like page 400 trillion of this book. You must really, really like me! ;)
Uh, yeah... so here's what the heck I would do...
I would create at least one new WSO per month. I'd keep offering my older WSO's
as bonuses with which to build my buyers list... and as OTO's. I'd keep getting on
those leaderboards. Remember, the more products you sell, the bigger your list
gets. Before long, you'll be CRUSHING those leaderboards. No question.
So my popularity and reputation would grow both amongst my JV friends and my
customers & subscribers. And the more they grow... the more they grow. Know what

I mean? Each positive thing leads to more positive things which leads to even more.
Okay, so I'd keep the whole thing growing... my customer base, Facebook friends,
repeat JV's, leaderboard prizes, product line, etc.
But I would ALSO keep bumping all my WSO's. If you're unaware, you can bump
your WSO back to the top of the forum thread listings every time it reaches page 3.
So for the sake of easy math, we'll just say that, at the end of a year, I've got 14 of
these $5 WSO's (that may or may not be the price I'd settle upon) all live on the
Warrior Forum. That'd be pretty kickass right?
Well what if each day of the week, I bumped two of them? It costs 20 bucks to
bump. That means that as long as I can get 4 front-end sales per bump, I'd break
even and put 4 fresh buyers on my list, cycling through my 14 WSO's once a week.
Maybe the first bump would be at 6am and the second one would be at 6pm. At two
per day, I'd cycle through my 14 WSO's once a week.
That's 8 buyers per day added to my list.
That's 56 buyers per week added to my list.
That's 240 buyers per month added to my list.
That's 2,880 buyers per year added to my list.
And this is in addition to all the other strides I'd be making in my business. All for
just clicking a button twice a day! That's the power of having your own products!
Anyway, I'm primed to go off on a tangent here, so let me not.
This book has gone on long enough, and I'd sure like a break! ;)
So whattaya say we wrap this puppy up?
I think it sounds like a fine idea, too...

Conclusion:
Well look at you, big dawg!
You made it all the way through all my crunk-ass hooplah!
I couldn't be more grateful for and inspired by your support, action, and tenacity.
Kudos!
I know this has been a lot. But hey, that's business, yo. As stated a thousand times
throughout this book, these are the exact same actions that I would take if I were
starting back at the beginning, knowing everything I know today.
I knew I'd be doing you a massive disservice if I left anything out for the sake of
brevity. So I essentially “pretended” I was starting over with this very publication!
And I just basically documented the entire damn process for ya. ;)
I hope you can appreciate such things.
So what's next?
Ummm... go back to the top of this book and read it again. But this time, if you
haven't already, follow along! Complete the action steps you see me completing. For
the love of Mike Tyson's ability to hear out of his mouth, take some freakin' action!
“That Was Kinda Dumb, Lee.”
You're kinda dumb.
The point is, there is no “next.” Just do what I've shared with you in this book.
There's really nothing more to do until you're earning a FT living online. What I've
shared with you today is all you need to become a wild Internet marketing success...
And if you don't believe that, then it's that lack of belief that's the real problem.

I've actually included an extremely concise, step-by-step action plan for you to
follow if you really wanna do what I'd do if I were starting all over.
The “From the Top Checklist” can be found in your bonuses folder.
I got your back, baby!
And I really do hope that you do this stuff.
I realize that it's not the sexy push-button riches horse shit that gets everyone all
hot in the undies, with dollar signs where their eyeballs used to be.
Sorry about that.
I like to do stuff that actually works to produce a real income. I know... weird.
But if you're as crazy as I am, and you want to build a real business that can feed
you and your family for life, then hey... this is what I'd do!
Thanks for playing along. ;)
I hope this has served you tremendously well.
Always in your corner,
Lee Murray
